MATTHEW P. RODGERS Portfolio of work


Matthew Paul Rodgers, M. Arch Design is inherent in everything we do , and everything we encounter. It is in the way we present ourselves, how we communicate, and is present in the places that we inhabit and experience. Our role as designers is to enhance the quality of life and the quality of the things we experience

I’ve learned much about design through education and experience,

which has provided me with a set of creative problem solving skills, and techniques,

that enable to heighten experiences,

and embrace the idea of leaving places in better condition than when we found them.


Matthew Paul Rodgers, M. Arch

I am a recent graduate with a Masters Degree in Architecture from UNLV, where I learned valuable design skills, and presentation skills, as well as creative thinking and problem solving. I’m currently shifting in to the field of media-production, and design, as I am continuing my education to achieve my Masters of Business Administration Degree. I’m looking to transition in to media arts by gaining work experience and focusing my education in that direction. Contact Information

The Downtown Community Library of Las Vegas connects to the local community, and to the city. The courtyard at the entrance embraces the local community, by giving the community a visual connection to the library book stacks.. The courtyard expresses the post- enlightenment ideology, that all people have the ability to be educated. The Library’s 4th Floor Gallery connects to the city, by placing the inhabitants directly in the context of the city, through a panoramic visual gallery.

• Urban/Suburban Hybrid Housing in Las Vegas (sustainable approach) 5th Year Studio • Supervised by Professor Jess Holmes, AIA • Fall 2010


• URBAN/SUBURBAN HYBRID HOUSING IN LAS VEGAS Las Vegas is a city that is predominately automobile orientated. This project is meant to be a transition, Between the Sub-Urban sprawl that floods the valley, in a cognizant shift in make housing more Sustainable, affordable, and economical in Las Vegas.

SHARED SPACE


In Las Vegas, growth became exponential, and suburban sprawl has created a series of privatized neighborhoods that do not offer the residents the opportunity of a Live/Work experience. Urban/Suburban Hybrid housing is intended to be a catalyst and a driver for change in how the city of Las Vegas approaches housing. As Las Vegas is currently over-built, space starts to become more and more valuable, this project recognizes that we will soon reach a point in which land will be a vital asset.

Project Description: Performing Architecture is an urban intervention for Downtown Las Vegas. The project utilizes Performance Arts and Performance art venues as a way to characterize Downtown Las Vegas. This project demonstrates the implementation of an environment that revolves around performance art, and establishes a live-work environment for the inhabitants. Background Information: Las Vegas itself is home to one of the most famous streets in the world, the Las Vegas Strip. I feel that the Downtown Las Vegas area has the potential to provide Las Vegas with an identity that extends beyond the “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” conception. Downtown Las Vegas is the byproduct of a city that is the quintessential model for suburban sprawl. As Las Vegas is rich in theater and art, it is the goal of Performance Architecture to offer an alternative to the character of Las Vegas. Studio Culture: The project is supervised by Gensler Architects of Nevada. It was offered as part of an urban design focused studio for the completion of my thesis. Being mentored by Yim Gloria Jew currently teaching at CCA, the project has received recognition. This project has allowed me to demonstrate my passion for Architecture and Performance Arts in a single project.

Street Performers are like canaries in the mines... When the canaries die that means that the mines are poisonous, and must be evacuated. Like canaries the presence of street performers shows that the society has the necessary freedoms to allow healthy human habitation. When the laws of society become so restrictive, or public spaces get so controlled that street performers can no longer exist than that’s the sign that society is not healthy for human habitation. - Mark Rothman
